White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Sunday that President Donald Trump was just joking in 2016 when he said he loved WikiLeaks. Trump had heaped praise on the anti-secrecy organization during his presidential campaign in 2016, after it released hacked emails from the Clinton campaign. Yet he appeared to feign ignorance about the organization last week, saying he knew "nothing about WikiLeaks," following the revelation that its founder Julian Assange has been indicted in the US. "Look, clearly the president was making a joke during the 2016 campaign," Sanders said.
